Queensbury today

        Gamekeepers burning Baildon Moor
           Viewed from Foxhill Park

                                 Raggalds Flood ex birding spot.
           Nice sky over Pellon Lane this evening

Another belter of a day with sunshine and blue skies, this will probably last till the weekend!!
Plenty LBBs moving >N up the Aire valley at midday and the unusual sighting of 4 Skylarks moving around Foxhill park.
Going by several reports today Curlews are now well established on the local moors as well as Oystercatchers, a sure sign of spring around the corner.
A check on Raggalds flood at lunch time found it yet again void of bird life other than corvids, hard to understand why this place has suddenly gone off the birding map even though conditions are perfect.
Plenty fires going over Baildon Moor today, dont know if this is a productive thing or not but obviously to do with the Grouse shooting.
Had to go down to the vets from work just in time to see the sun drop below the horizon still leaving a beautiful blue sky.
